- Directed by: Richard Claus, Karsten Kiilerich
- Cast: Rasmus Hardiker, Amy Saville, Jim Carter, Tim Pigott-Smith, Alice Krige, Miriam Margolyes
Young vampire Rudolph (Hardiker) befriends a young boy (Saville) on holiday in the Black Forest. Animated remake (yes, that’s a thing) of a 2000 live action movie based on a beloved children’s book; tame and square, with trite life lessons about putting aside differences, it’s not even as good as Hotel Frankenstein.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
The story of Rudolph, a thirteen year old vampire, whose clan is threatened by a notorious vampire hunter. He meets Tony, a mortal of the same age, who is fascinated by old castles, graveyards and - vampires. Tony helps Rudolph in an action and humor packed battle against their adversaries, and together they save Rudolph's family and become friends.
